Shepton Mallet town is changing, niche independents who offer a unique choice of hand-crafted, art, fashion, vintage, interiors and antiques are beginning to transform the town. Slowly but surely we are seeing positive signs. Enthusiasm is brewing....we just need a bit of sunshine to kick start 2013
In my view, the priority for the town is to attract more businesses to lease the available shops. I cannot believe there are two prime locations in the Market Place.
|Two shops available to let - the right shop was featured in Turn Back time|
|Do you remember how the shop above looked during the filming of Turn Back Time|
....here are some of the wonderful memories
|The Victorian Shop|
The food spilled into the square on Market day outside the Sergisons shop
|Shop Display cabinets made everything look desirable|
Vegetables looked so much more appealing on natural sack cloth and eggs laid
on straw...simple effective merchandising
|The Edwardian store|
Style became a little more sophisticated, simple and symmetrical
The town was vibrant during the filming and I don't see why we can't get a little bit of it back.
I am on a mission to find businesses. Firstly, has anyone ideas for the type of shop that would work in the Market Place? Please forward your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will spread the word.
There is a group called SMS (Shepton Mallet Shops) looking at exciting events for the town

P.s My next SHOP WATCH ....Penny's Sweet Shop (success stories)
